NRI’s Ideas Summit is a biennial conference that brings together leading public intellectuals, conservative leaders and policymakers, and philanthropists to critically assess the standing and future of conservatism in an intimate setting that fosters substantive dialogue. These Summits combine the best aspects of NRI’s early regional conferences and post-election conferences while incorporating new features that enable the Institute to have an even greater impact in strengthening the conservative movement.


For out-of-town guests, NRI has secured a hotel room block at the Mandarin Oriental (where the Summit will take place). We ask that you please book your accommodations at your earliest convenience by making a reservation online or over the phone. The Mandarin Reservations team can reached by phone at 202-787-6140 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm EST Monday through Friday and 9:00 am to 5:30 pm EST on weekends. When you call please mention you are with the National Review Institute room block.

The individual cancellation policy is 24 hours prior to arrival to avoid a 1 night’s room & tax cancellation fee.
